My Pumpkins are Tiny - but so are Terry's
It was our first attempt growing them, in a raised bed too, and there was plenty of foliage and beautiful yellow flowers (now on the compost).
I was dishevelled and downcast - until I heard "Terry from the Rhondda" on the radio, speaking from his allotment on his usual slot. He said that this year had been appalling for pumpkin growers and the crop was very small.
So if Terry from the Rhondda had a bad year with his pumpkins, I don't think I need to worry.
